Bill's tip: 'If your butcher doesn't have any chicken mince, you can buy boneless thighs and mince them yourself in a food processor.'


  1. Put the chicken mince, onion, breadcrumbs, garlic, lemongrass, coriander, lime zest, fish sauce and sugar in a large bowl and mix together well with your hands.
  2. Shape into 6 patties, then cover and refrigerate for 30 mins.
  3. Pre-heat a barbecue or chargrill pan and brush with a little light-flavoured oil such as grapeseed or canola. Cook the patties for 4 mins each side or until cooked through.
  4. Serve on soft rolls with lettuce, mint and coriander leaves and chilli sauce. Great with spicy slaw.
